Cool, chic and stylish bedroom ideas for men

Looking for some cool-but-chic bedroom ideas for men? We’ve sifted through the Livingetc magazine archives to pull together some of the most stylish and masculine master bedrooms. From edgy, raw concrete designs to chic grasscloth-covered walls, and from floor-to-ceiling leather headboards to more pared-back boho designs, there are cool mens bedroom ideas to suit every age and relationship status.

The general colour palette in these spaces are earthy browns, gorgeous greys or inky blues, but there are softer shades featured too for a more neutral-looking bedroom.

Bedroom lighting is mostly modern, simple and clean, either in the form of cool wall lights or practical reading spotlights. Hanging pendants on either side of the bed make a stylish alternative to wall lights, and are mostly kept small and simple in terms of design.

As for texture, these masculine bedroom ideas feature texture by the bucket-load. We love the leather detailing – like equestrian-inspired leather straps on headboards and soft furnishings – and the contrast of woods, concrete and metal.

The metal bed from Timothy Oulton is seriously cool. The bespoke wood beds are inspiring too, featuring built-in bedside drawers.

A draped cloth over a hanging rod above the bed is a more minimalist approach to a headboard, and we love the idea below of using a cane screen too. A hanging rug or tapestry would also do the trick.

Grasscloth wallpapers, and framed black and white photography create a more elegant look, while the raw concrete walls in one of the bedrooms below create an edgy, industrial vibe.


This masculine bedroom features a large floor to ceiling art-deco inspired headboard which takes centre stage. The headboard features a series of leather arches in bold bronze tones, accented by gold trim and complemented by hanging pendant globe bedside lights from Lee Broom on either side.


Inky blues are a stunning and dramatic colour for a bedroom. The drama of deep colour in this masculine bedroom creates a fantastically cocooning effect.


The grasscloth effect wallpaper is actually made from wood, and gives this room lots of texture. Blinds made from Pierre Frey fabric match it perfectly.


Layers of green paint evoke a soothing atmosphere in this master bedroom. A cane screen acts as a headboard, and injects a natural backdrop for this sleeping space. Hanging pendants on either side create a soft glow at night.


This cool, calm bedroom space features a masculine scheme, with black, brass and leather accents. The leather straps on the headboard have an equestrian edge. The smokey sage colour extends from the walls up onto the ceiling, creating a cocooning effect.


A low, wood bed with wall-to-wall wood headboard creates a relaxed, cool and boho vibe. Hanging pendants accentuate the height, and are a cooler design alternative to traditional wall lights.


A darker palette was used to create a more masculine guest room space. The snorkel print adds whimsy. The grasscloth wallpaper adds texture while the brass accents add warmth.


Raw concrete is contrasted by wood to create an edgy, cool, modern and masculine master bedroom. The bespoke wooden bed is designed by architect Mr. Mao with an integrated wall spot from Vipp.


A metal Timothy Oulton bed gives this room a very cool edge. The mirror was mounted on to an easel to get round the issue of the curved wall.


A matt black headboard unit works as a functional focal point in this master bedroom. The headboard also hides a practical shelf for a changing array of art.


A grey upholstered feature wall acts as the headboard and centres the bed.

The black side tables have oak drawers and tie in with the hardwood floors, with custom white lamps on top by local ceramist Kassandra Thatcher. The room is a riot of texture, pattern, and colour, from the angular edges of the marble to the deep softness of the sheepskin and the wool throws.


A draped cloth makes an interesting feature above the bed, and is a cool alternative to a headboard or other feature. The blue colour is matched by a day bed that sits opposite it.


Lighter tones like the cream headboard lighten this space, while the grasscloth wallcovering and sumptuous velvets infuse this bedroom with lots of texture.


Here, a blue room is made even darker with a blue ceiling and matching door and door frame.


This master bedroom is drenched in swathes of blue, with a teal wall and headboard, and a bespoke screen which was hand painted by Francois Mascarello. The bed is a textural feast, with stonewashed linen and a headboard upholstered in linen, contrasting against shimmery velvet accent cushions.

Bedside tables were created from blocks of sculptural concrete.


This wood covered wall frames the bed and headboard, and features beautiful built-in floating bedside tables with drawer storage.


The artworks give this room some drama; the owner had this print of The Bather by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (just seen) blown up. He picked up pictures of Chinese girls on a work trip.

Navy & white is a classic colour pairing, shown here with a stunning velvet headboard, and crisp white sheets. Small, minimalist reading lights add a functional, unfussy look, while the hanging pendants add drama and a warm glow at night.


The side tables are built into the bed frame, while the headboard wraps around to envelope them, merging together as one piece of furniture. The bathroom is segregated from the bedroom by a partition wall.


This attic bedroom makes the most of an awkward shaped room, and boasts a beautifully restful, neutral palette.
